Safety Tip # 1
Pay attention to the forecast: If the weather service is telling you to not travel unless necessary… don’t travel unless it’s necessary!
Always try to drive with a full tank of gas (One less thing to worry about if you get stuck in traffic)
Safety Tip #3
Make sure you have an emergency kit for your car with a variety of the following inside:
-Battery operated radio
-Something brightly colored and reflective that can be used to call attention to your car if needed
Try to travel during the day
Safety Tip #5
If you’re driving and you think it’s too dangerous to continue, pull over! Turn on your hazard lights and hang a distress flag from your car’s radio antenna or window.
